Easter Egg Decorating with Cool Chile Products

Difficulty

easy

Did you know that you can decorate eggs using Cool Chile products as natural dyes? We have used Mexican Oregano, Achiote Seeds for a yellow/golden colour and Hibiscus Flowers for a dark blue colour. Use white shelled eggs for the most vibrant results.

Method

To make a dye bath for the eggs, add 2 litres of water to a saucepan with 20g of your chosen Cool Chile product (the more you use, the more intense the colour will be), bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Then add 1-2tsp of vinegar.

In the meantime wash the eggs thoroughly. You can remove the stamp mark with a small amount of vinegar on a paper towel and gently rub it.

Add the eggs to your dye and boil for another 7-8 min. Keep them overnight for the best results. When ready, leave the eggs to dry on a paper towel (do not rub, as the dye can come off easily before it drys). Once dry, apply a small amount of oil with a paper towel and polish gently to make them glow.
